Castello Sforzesco
Piazza Castello

The Sala delle Asse by Leonardo da Vinci at the Castello Sforzesco will be re-opened to the public from May 16th 2019 after restoration works. A platform allows a close view of the monochrome decoration and other exceptional traces of preparatory drawings depicting landscape, trunks, branches and leaves, emerged during the removal of “scialbo” layers, from the walls.  


A multimedia installation explains to visitors the work created by Leonardo for celebrating Ludovico il Moro, Duke of Milano.
